Google has announced today that its Google Fiber sub-organization would be shutting off its service in Louisville, Kentucky. This news is big as Google does not have a good relationship with this city. This is due to the fact that Google had requested a law to be altered that would allow it to move other company’s equipment on utility poles. Apparently, Louisville spent around $4000,000 USD defending the law but it seems that
Google never required this change at all.
Why Google Fibre is leaving Louisville?
According to Google, it doesn’t feel that it’s not providing the “high standards” which is demonstrated in other cities in which Google Fibre is currently being tested. According to the company it needs to revamp and rebuild the whole infrastructure to fix the things.
The effect won’t be immediate and the network is set to cut on April 15 and the service would be provided for free for the next two months.
